Closing time: One Last Call for Mellon Square

The series of downtown summer programming is closing out with two happy hour events.

After a season packed with activities and outdoor fun, it’s time to say goodbye to summer at Mellon Square, Downtown.

“Summer at the Square,” a series of programming, will close out with “Last Call,” two Thursday happy hour events taking place Sept. 12 and Sept. 26.

Developed in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and Citizens Bank, the events will feature live music, interactive games and a plethora of food and drink options. A selection of food trucks — including Totopo, Burgh Bites and Graeter’s Ice Cream — will be open for business, while the over-21 crowd can sample adult beverages from Mindful Brewing.

The pair of events closes out a season of festivities designed to contribute to the revitalization of Mellon Square.

Originally opened in 1955, the park was given a $10 million makeover several years ago before reopening to the public in 2014. Consisting of 1.37 acres of rooftop garden plaza, Mellon Square is the first public space of its kind to be built atop a parking garage.

This summer’s programming kicked off in early June and was followed by a number of free, public activities, including fitness classes and live performances.

While Last Call closes out the summer in Mellon Square, returning guests can plan on select events continuing into the fall season, including a weekly Farmers Market held every Friday through Oct. 25.
